Catalyst Completes Asta Powerproject Roll-Out with Pepper Construction
One of the leading firms in the Midwest faced the challenge of software obsolescence with their project scheduling system (Suretrak). They turned to Catalyst for advice on best-in-class software options, user training and implementation support.
Pepper Construction Group, with nearly 1,000 employees and well-known clients in the commercial and private sectors, has long used technology to drive efficiency and, ultimately, a better finished product.
“Construction technology has evolved rapidly in the last 20 years,” said Howie Piersma, vice president of IT at Pepper Construction. “That enabled innovation not only in how we deliver services but also in how we plan. We were looking for a software that would be as nimble as our team.”
Pepper’s selection committee was looking for a fully capable, scalable, easy-to-integrate and simple-to-use system with an established track record and user community. After an exhaustive review of nearly a dozen options and an extensive trial of each, Asta Powerproject became the clear choice.
“At Pepper, we believe that investing more time in planning up front actually compresses our overall timeline,” said Eric Bullion, Pepper project director. “Asta Powerproject will help us do that even more efficiently. The system is intuitive and customizable – providing our teams the ability to quickly produce a quality schedule in a way that supports the needs of each individual client.”
Asta Powerproject software is the first choice of many leading contractors throughout the world and has been enjoying rapid adoption in North America since its introduction here in 2013. More than 100,000 schedulers worldwide rely on Asta Powerproject every day to create and update precise project schedules, collaborate across the enterprise, manage resources and costs, and report progress to owners and clients.
Catalyst, as the Midwest reseller for Asta Powerproject, was proud to help Pepper make the switch to Asta Powerproject.
